We had the experience of travelling along the Paseo de Montejo, the central boulevard of Merida, in a horse-drawn carriage - which is really the best way to see and savour the marvellous and wonderful old Spanish-colonial mansions and villas that line the route - interspersed with the odd hotel, shop or bank. How the wealthy silver and sisal merchants... More

It was a very hot day, granted, but it seemed there was less to explore and see here than other parts of Merida. There were fancy buildings and a starbucks so if that's your thing you'll like it. But I enjoyed the other neighborhoods of Merida more.

Visit on a Sunday since Road is closed to traffic then. It is brilliant to stroll along and see the turn of the century villas built by the rope barons. Visit the two houses open (Palacio Canton - museum of anthropology - and Casa Montero) from a peek behind closed doors and see how they lived. You can rent bikes... More

We will be going back to take in another tour when we are in Merida next winter. Plus the gift shop has some... More

Must do activity in this lovely setting looking at the colonial old buildings in what must have been a pretty exclusive street. Look out for the lovely colours of the houses and the wonderful building housing the museums of Merida . And the Santander Bank.

Our last evening in Merida, we hired a carriage for a 40 minute ride through town. We had no idea what the Paseo was, or why it was mentioned so often. After traveling through the narrow, hot and crowded streets of the Centro area, we came into the Montejo area. Divided 2-lane streets with green boulevards and many trees made... More

Paseo de Montejo is a very nice avenue with lots of restaurants, cafes, shops, etc. It is also nice to walk around in the evening and very safe.

This is a free museum full of city history. Tells the story of the founding Spanish family. We enjoyed it very much.
